Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm went 2-for0-4 with a double and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Atlanta Braves. Bohm was also the focal point of controversial review where it appeared that his foot may have never touched home plate, but he was ruled safe on the field and again ruled safe after the review.

 Perez returned from missing all of the 2019 season to put up monstrous numbers. He batted .333 with 11 home runs in just 37 games. Sure, his meager walk rate became even worst and he struck out more than ever, but his strong numbers were absolutely earned. He had an expected batting average of .325, an expected slugging percentage of .624, and barreled baseballs at a significantly higher rate than he ever had before. Perez will be 31 years old this year this year but considering that he's had just 156 plate appearances combined over the past two years (after having one of the heaviest workloads for a catcher over the previous six seasons), he should have some gas left in the tank. Draft him as a top-three catcher without hesitation.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Bohm's major league debut was a success, in that he batted a robust .338 with an .881 OPS. But despite hitting the ball hard consistently (his 10.3% barrel rate and 46.8% hard hit percentage was well above the major league average), he hit just four home runs, and his xBA was just .286. The problem is he simply pounded the ball into the ground, putting up a 53.2% ground ball rate and just 4.8 degrees of launch angle. Bohm never showed a ton of power in the minors, but he's just entering his age-25 season, so there's always room for growth. But for redraft leagues, buy him as a high-average bat with unexceptional power.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
 Salvy was tremendous in 2020, but we have seen his capabilities for years now, so why is everyone weighing the 2020 season so much in their catcher projections? Sure he will likely finish as a top 5 catcher barring health, but his ADP makes little sense, especially in 1C leagues.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Bohm had a terrific rookie season at the plate. It just didn't come with as much game power as we were expecting. Bohm's .144 ISO from 2020 didn't come close to the .213 mark he posted in the minors, but perhaps he was still adjusting to big league pitching. Bohm hit .338, so it isn't as if he was overmatched. His strong hit tool gives him a high floor offensively. His fantasy ceiling will come down to whether or not he taps into that power.
Brendan Tuma - FantasyPros
 Perez is the consensus No. 2 catcher coming off draft boards so far. His career year in 2020 was backed up by his Statcast data, but it was also just a 37-game sample. Volume is one of Perez's calling cards as he typically plays a good amount more than other catchers. Entering 2021, one could make a case that volume plus his newfound skills make him an enviable target come draft day. However, I've yet to find what made 2020 so different for him other than it being a hot streak. I'd rather wait to fill my catcher slot than drafting one of the "elite" options.
